This feature is only available for new tenants starting from Zuora Release 228 (R228), July 2018. Zuora recommends that you use the latest behavior to retrieve invoice information. If you wish to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support asking for invoice item and file references to be enabled in the REST API.
